1991 Volvo 240 4dr Wagon


Purchased the vehicle in Germany 14 years ago and actually picked it up at the factory in Gotheborg Sweden. This car has been to Berlin, Venice, London, and Paris with no problems. 140,000 miles later I had my first major problem. The Mass Air Flow Meter acted up and had the car running hard with a high idle. Replaced with new flow meter and it runs like a top. Expect another 100,000 miles out of her.

Best Features

Handles well in snow. Easy maintenance. You can actually change your own spark plugs in less than 15 minutes without ripping your knucles apart.

Worst Features

Due to its tank like features the 4 cylinder engine must work awfully hard going uphill.
